He operated on my hip and left me handicapped! Evidently, he had to move a gluteus muscle to do the surgery but failed to put it back when closing the site. WhenI reported I was still in pain after the surgery he immediately, without reviewing the case, blamed it on my back! Arogant! Stay away!

I had trouble with my right knee following an injury that left me bone on bone. After many surgical consults in the Palm Springs area & Beverly Hills, I loved that Dr Sinha waited until other medical issues were rightened to his comfort and a custom knee was assembled just for me. After lots of time and checking with other patients, Dr Sinha did the job beautifully and his after care is SO comforting. I trusted him with my life, would do it again. MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!

He is one of the finest surgeons I have ever had and most of my replaceable parts have been replaced. He is very kind.
